Article: “BAGHDAD’S CURRENCY DEVALUATION LIFTS LID ON IRAN’S EXPLOITATION OF IRAQI RESOURCES” Here it is in black and white…I quote from the article: “The DECISION TO DEVALUE THE IRAQI DINAR AGAINST THE US DOLLAR HAS HAD POLITICAL AND STRATEGIC IMPLICATIONS FOR IRAN AND ITS MILITIAS IN IRAQ AND THE REGION”. They are killing 2 birds with one stone. They are accomplishing multiple objectives with the devaluation. It is a powerful & strategic move. It means it is not about a falling economy and a country about to go broke, but rather a means to a bigger end.
